Show Some Love:
Fried Chicken, King Cake, and Sazeracs
A highlight from this past weekend was a trip to Southern Pacific Brewing in the Mission. Tucked away on a nondescript stretch of Treat, this place looks fantastic. Industrial, with soaring ceilings and lots of corrugated metal, Southern Pacific has a great outdoor area out front and an enormous interior. My friends and I were able to snag a table, which seems like a small miracle on a Friday night. We shared a couple of pitchers of beer (delicious) and a few small plates and had a laid-back time. I'll definitely be back soon!
PS: are you stuffed full of fried chicken, king cake, and sazeracs from a night of Fat Tuesday indulgence?
